Show your support for youth

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Have I told you lately that I love kids? I love everyone’s kids. After today, I hope you will try to do so too.
Our assets this week are number three, which is other adult relationships and four, which is a caring neighborhood.
They are defined as the child receiving support from adults other than her or his parent(s) and the child experiencing caring neighbors.
This summer, my son’s two best friends moved to other towns in New Mexico. Either departure would have been sad, but for them both to move was pretty unreal.
I find that it was also sad for me, too.
I didn’t see the young lady often, but knew my son was in constant communication and they hung out when they had time. They were great sounding boards for each other and a safe place for each other to fall.
The young man was like a family member. He is one of the nicest kids I know and was often referred to as another Lauritzen. He still visits from time to time, but I miss the daily interactions, watching him at sporting events and hearing him provide my son equal amounts of sass and encouragement.
Kids do better when they have good adult role models in their life. You don’t have to be a spectacular person, crazy smart or have money, just take time to lend an ear or a smile.
